We told you about this crime last month; now the police ask your help in finding the culprit

DAVID F. ASHTON - After a woman was sideswiped and seriously injured by a truck as she was leaving her car on S.E. Division Street, officers examined the area looking for evidence. Today, they are still looking for the felonious driver, and they could use your help.
On February 25, at 9:08 p.m., 48-year-old Andrea Saffaie-Castro was seriously injured when – after parking her car on the north side of SE Division Street and stepping out of it – she was struck by a westbound truck.

As reported in the April issue of THE BEE, the driver didn't stop, or even slow down.

"The suspect vehicle is described as a white, newer-model extended-cab pickup, lifted, with a chromed rack behind the cab, and towing an open utility trailer," said Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson.

Saffaie-Castro was been hospitalized, and is recovering from traumatic injuries. Meantime, Crime Stoppers of Oregon is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this, or any unsolved felony crime.

Call 503/823-4357, or report online – – and you can do so anonymously, if you wish.
